Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:37 One Day at a Time: In season 2's "Lockdown," we feel for Penelope when her Alone/Boyfriend Time is cruelly interrupted by a neighborhood lockdown (and a shoe-horned gun-control discussion). Mentioned: One of Alan Sepinwall's columns on the show.
6:41 The West Wing: "Angel Maintenance" and its accompanying West Wing Weekly podcast episode gave us lots of behind-the-scenes on both the real and fictional Air Force One. Plus, an adorable bonus episode of the podcast featured Hamilton's own Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tommy Kail. Mentioned: Little House on the Podcast and this Tony Awards montage.
20:18 Challenge Round: But Enough About Me: Catherine challenged Terri to read this memoir by Jancee Dunn, all about her career interviewing celebrities. Thanks to the short chapters, Terri was hooked right away!
For next week, Terri challenged Catherine to watch the movie He's Just Not That Into You. It's the latest in Terri's series on "movies that are not precisely good but I will watch them anytime."
We'll also watch the next two episodes of One Day at a Time ("Exclusive" and "What Happened"), and instead of West Wing, episodes 2 and 3 of Trophy Wife ("Cold File" and "The Social Network").
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
